Recent Trends on Embedded System: Airborne Electronic Applications

Event Date: 11th April 2019
Event Venue: Falconry Hall, New Horizon College of Engineering, Bangalore

Speaker: Mr. Kulbhushan Bhaji Patariya who is a Scientist from Aeronautical Development Agency
(ADA), Bangalore.

The IEEE NHCE SB had organized a guest lecture on 11th April 2019 in Embedded Systems & Design. The speaker for the lecture was Mr. Kulbhushan Bhaji Patariya who is a Scientist from Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA), Bangalore. He has over 8 years ofexperience in Software verification of Avionics Line Replacement unit for aircrafts and is very skilled in
various hardware level languages. He also contributed towards the development of “DRDO standard for
Software Development Guideline”. This guideline is developed by DRDO for software development to
be followed throughout all the DRDOs.
The scientist started off by giving a brief introduction on what an embedded system is, how they are classified in differentfields and the features. The session was very interactive,Mr.Kulbhushan told about his line of work, where the quality factors of an embedded system played an important role. As the
factors were about real time situations, individual system check, behavior of the company and other
factors.

BRAIN GAMES

Event Date: 5thApril 2019
Event Venue: Analog Electronics Lab, New Horizon College of Engineering, Bangalore

On the 5th of April 2019, IEEE NHCE SB conducted the  event called “Brain Games”. This contest consisted of three rounds where a team of two could participate. The first round was General Quiz, the second round was Code Debugging and the final round was Circuit Debugging. A total of 30 teams from ECE and other departments registered for the event. At 11 a.m. the participants were asked to assemble at room no.215 in the ECE department
where we held the first round. The General Quiz consisted of 27 questions and the time given was
half an hour. Suraj Suresh and Rakesh M from the BSH department topped the round with a brilliant
score of 18. At 12:15 first round result was announced. Second round started at 1.00 pm in the VLSI lab. 16 teams had qualified for the second round. The participants were given three programs in which 2 were of C and 1 was C++. These codes had multiple syntax errors and some logical errors. Each team was asked to rectify the errors and get the
correct output. It was a time critical round and the first 4 teams who finished got qualified for the
final round. The final round started at 2:15 p.m. in the AC lab. Each team was given one equation
which they had to simplify and implement using logic gates. They were also given one analog circuit
with errors which they had to rectify with the help of the correct circuit diagram given to them.
Jeevan and Raghavendra of 6
th semester were the winners and Suraj Suresh and Rakesh M from the
BSH department were the runners-up. Our faculty co-ordinators Mrs. Divya Sharma and Mrs. Neethu
Johny congratulated the winners and runners up.
We would like to extend our gratitude to Mr. Manoranjan and Mr. Uma Prasad who tirelessly helped
and guided us in executing this event successfully. Our special thanks also to our faculty coordinators Mrs. Divya Sharma and Mrs. Neethu Johny whose constant guidance and support led to
the completion of this event. Our sincere thanks to our HOD, Dr. Sanjeev Sharma and our Principal
Dr.V Manjunatha and IEEE NHCE Branch counsellor Dr.Nisha for giving us this opportunity to conduct
this competition.
